    Super dish! Smells delicious, looks amazing, & tastes great! I accidentally doubled the garlic, but I like it that way. Used mild salsa verde & it was great! I'll decrease the portion size or dilute a little w/ chicken broth next time as the vinegar packs a punch. Great w/ corn tortillas! Thanks - 2/16/09

    This was terrific and loved by my husband and my two kids! This is a dish I will definitely make again and tonight we are using leftovers rolled in tortillas with salsa and a bit of cheese sprinkled over the top and baked in the oven for enchiladas! Yummy! - 8/4/08

    Loved the flavors! Used 16 oz can diced tomatoes (drained) instead of sun-dried, baked chicken separately, sauteed garlic in 1 teaspoon oil, reduced vinegar to 1 teaspoon - 10/3/09

    I really liked this - a different flavour and a great way to add beans into my diet. Thumbs up from my non-bean loving husband. I cut the oil down to 1 tbsp without any negative side effects. I love the vinegar with the salsa - I wouldn't have thought it would taste good - but it was great! - 6/4/09

    I made this last night--it sounded so good, but I've never used salsa verde before and didn't realize how spciy it was--didn't taste anything--it was so hot. Would like to see if it tastes better with maybe a tomatillo sauce and some onion and maybe garlic powder--probably like a new recipe--lol. - 2/21/09

    a great recipe! it was very quick and easy to make and delicious (the salsa verde gives it a nice kick). I added some leftover zucchini early on (with the chicken, but prob could have added before too)--it's really tasty and now is more like 5-6 servings ( so prob even helps the nutritional info!) - 8/26/08

    This is soooo good!! I'm eating it right now :) I served over brown rice, sprinkled about 1 tbs sharp cheddar and 1 tbs reduced-fat sour cream...super delicious! I feel like I'm eating an authentic Mexican meal. Will definitely make again!! Thanks for sharing your recipe! - 2/22/09

    I made this last night and my family loved it! They decided to put it all, including the rice, into a tortilla and loved it. I had it without the tortilla and it was VERY good! Thanks for the recipe! - 7/25/08

    You can cut the sodium down in this recipe by using a can of low sodium black beans (such as Goya brand). Sounds tasty - 7/24/08

    Such a great recipe! Quick, easy, and a change from the ordinary. The calories are a bit high if you have it over rice, so I cut the serving in half and am still satisfied! Thanks for the fantastic recipe! - 12/21/08

    Awesome! Due to health issues, we made this with dried beans, home made salsa verde (surprisingly easy!), half the oil, and served it over a mixture of brown rice and barley. A little extra work by substituting the canned ingredients, but so worth it. Tastes like restaurant food! - 3/1/10

    I decided to try this recipe cause it sounded different. Was easy to make but I absolutely could not eat it. Didn't like the tangy. My husband and daughter thought it was OK. They didn't care for it over the brown rice. so they ate just the chicken. - 10/5/09

    Wow, was this good! My husband would have had thirds, but he was about to pop. My kids ate it with a dollop of sour cream to cut the spiciness, but my husband and I thought it was just right. Delicious! - 1/20/10

    We had this last night for dinner and it was delish. I love sun dried tomatoes. I had it over a bed of spinach and brown rice. The green spinach really offset the red in the meal nicely. Yum! - 12/13/09
